So you are putting a label on atheism which is incorrect. That is what I don't agree with. But I acknowledge that it could be the case for many people. There is nothing wrong with it as long as you don't imply that it's what atheism is all about by definition (I mean going against a religion). If you choose to see it as is, then it's your choise and it's legal. It's simply more than atheism but atheism is part of it.
No, I'm not putting a label on it. I don't see where you're getting this from. Atheism means different things to different people. To some religious people, I'm no better than the other mythical creature known as the Devil. I have never said or implied that Atheism is about going against religion. Some Atheists are against religion. That is my choice but it doesn't define my Atheism.
Some Atheists go bowling......so should we declare that that is part of being an Atheist? I'm not necessarily trying to change the meaning of Atheism but over the years, the meaning has changed somewhat.
Definitions of words are not necessarily static. They change over time.
Seemed to me that you implied more than a simple lack of beleif in a God. If that wasen't your intention, I apologize.
Again, just because I as well as others see it as a counter to religion does not mean that I define Atheism as such. Atheism is still just "A lack of belief in god." This meaning has changed before and it will undoubtedly change again over time.
I think we're closer in agreement than you think.
